Ariane named the game for this week’s drawing challenge: Playing Cards.
I recently received my new business cards from the wonderful MOO and was glad to put my old ones to good use for the challenge. I sanded the gloss down…
…and gessoed them on both sides.
Spent most of the week thinking up what my cards would be about, and had fun inventing suits for imaginary games, settling at last on a set of more or less domestic playing cards.
